The Loved Shack

We still can’t believe that people were asking us if our outdoor kitchen affectionately known as ‘The Shack’ was open on cold weekends during Autumn and Winter – but it is nice to know how much you love (and missed) it!

Now the sun is set to shine we’re delighted to announce The Shack is back open for weekends this Summer!

The menu has expanded and we’ve introduced a new ‘Little People’ Shack menu – we’ll be doing our amazing wood fired pizzas and also adding some extra BBQ favourites like pulled pork and slow braised beef brisket (See our full menu here). This year, you will also be able to run a tab so you can stay relaxing in the garden while we do the running about.

Weather permitting our opening hours during to summer season will be:

Friday nights 4-8pm

Saturday 12-8pm

Sunday 12-4pm

Summer Shack DJ Night – Sunday 27th May

We had some amazing evenings in the garden last year with our favourite DJ Danny Montuschi so we thought we’d kick off this Summer season with a party on Sunday 27th May during the Bank Holiday weekend. You know the score – balmy evening, great music, a bit of dancing, food, drink, firepits and free marshmallows. That should tick a few boxes.. (fingers crossed for the balmy evening bit).

Free Outdoor Social Cinema Evenings

Ditchling is an amazing village for finding creative, talented and resourceful people – so resourceful in fact they can even set up a 13ft cinema screen with state of the art sound system in our garden.  This was an offer too good to miss so we’re holding three free cinema nights on the second Saturday of June, July and August.  Check out our Facebook page, Twitter or Instagram to see the results of our polls for movie showings!  First one on Saturday 9th June.

Tesla Charging Partner

You may have noticed some additions to the car park and we’re delighted to announce that we have teamed up with Tesla to provide Tesla Destination Charging.  We have three free charging points, including one with a universal EV fitting (Tesla owners are able to add up to 100km of range per hour using this charging facility at The Bull).  Come and charge your car for free while you could sit back, relax and enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a night’s stay with us.

County Winners Pub & Bar Awards

We were pretty overjoyed to hear that we have been voted County Winner in the Pub and Bar Awards – named as the best pub in East Sussex and an outstanding example of industry best practice.  Next step the National Awards at the end of May, we’re keeping everything crossed.

Creative Writers Group

One of our lovely locals author and journalist, Annabelle Thorpe is planning some creative writing workshops at The Bull.  Annabelle has written two well reviewed novels ‘The People We Were Before’ and just out ‘What Lies Within’.  Annabelle will work with budding writers to gain an insight into the creative writing process and how to get from an idea into a published work.  If you are interested please email Annabelle

Royal Wedding & FA Cup Final

Saturday 19th May is a day of two halves – the Royal Wedding and the FA Cup Final – and we’ll be showing both in The Snug.  There will be nibbles and like-minded locals watching the proceedings so come along raise a glass or cheer on your favourite player – even if it is Prince Harry…

Free Breakfasts until the end of May

It’s been great to have lots of you join us for our buy one get one free breakfast offer – and don’t forget you can keep coming as many times as you like until the end of May – if you haven’t been make sure you don’t miss out.  Just use the code FREEBULLB1 when you book or tell a member of the team when you order and the cheaper breakfast will be free.  We serve our brilliant breakfasts 8-11am, every day.

Coming up …Artists Open Houses, Ditchling Fair and Bike Ride

Ditchling is a thriving village and this is a great time of year to plan a visit – starting this weekend is the Ditchling Artists Open Houses, part of the Brighton Festival where local artists and craftspeople open their doors every weekend in May.

The bi-annual Ditchling Fair takes over the village on Saturday 16th June now in it’s 706th year described as ‘like a rave but with old people and a church’ it’s a proper village event.  This is followed closely by Father’s Day and the London to Brighton Bike ride that goes straight past our door on Sunday 17th June – always a great atmosphere and good fun to cheer the riders on with a drink in your hand.  Bring your dad for a slap up breakfast, lunch or dinner and a few beers and join in the fun. There’s lots on, so come and visit us or book a stay for a slice of village life in our award winning pub.
